What's Happened So Far
According to the best information available, here ,re the steps
that have led to the adoption of the new Regents' by-law which would
"pack" thbe Boardin Control of Student Publications with new faculty
1. A little more than a year ago certain members of the Board of
Regents and some members of the faculty were disturbed by two ors
three "radical" editorials appearing in The Daily.
2. A group of faculty men circulated a petition urging that some
actiop be taken in regard to the Board in Control of Student Publica-
tions. Dr. Ruthven took this petition before the Regents and the Uni-
v'ersity Council.
3, The University Council then discussed Daily affairs at some
length, and appointed a committee to investigate and to make reckm.=
mendations. Prof. Axel Marin, of the engineering college, Prof. Ora S.
Duffendack, of the physics department, and Prof. Shirley Allen, of the
forestry school were the members of this committee.
4. This Council committee worked during the summer, and re-.
turned this fall with substantially the same recommendation that has,
been approved by the Regents.
5. The Council accepted this report. (Here there seems to be some
confusion. Some members of the Council say they were informed that
the "packing" measure had the approval of the present Board, which
it did not. Other Council men say they thought the matter was mere-
ly to be turned over to the present Board for consideration.)
6. Aware of the Council's action, the Board of Regents adopted the
reorganization plan as a part of their new by-laws which are 'still un-
dergoing revision.-
7. This week Provost E. Blythe Stason notified the Board in Con-
trol of Publications that it should consider a resolution that would
make the Board's corporation laws conform to the new by-laws of the
8. Yesterday the Board in Control of Student Publications met,
but did not take a vote on the resolution.. Instead, they decided to ask
for a hearing with the Regents.

Derby Ta ken"
f y., May 3.-(IP)-"Whacky" Whirl-
away, the little chestnut horse with
the big full tail and the blinding
stretch speed,' ran away with the
greatest Kentucky Derby of them all
Fairly flying down the last long
quarter mile, the stretch-running-est
son the blue grass has boasted of
in a long time galloped home by eight
lengths, laughing off all the "ifs"
they had tagged onto his chances and
bringing screams of admiration from
the biggest crowd ever to see a horse
race in America-an officially esti-
mated 100,000.I
Whirlaway did it by coming up
from the eighth place in the field of
11 under masterful handling by wise
Eddie Arcaro, and he put the crusher
on his critics so convincingly that his
smashing speed broke the Downs and
Derby record for the mile and a quar-
ter. He hit the wire in the red-hot
time of 2 minutes, 1 and two-fifths
seconds, two-fifths of a second faster
than it took Twenty Grand in posting
the fastest previous time in the 66
years of Derby history.
Far down the track and out of the
money as he came bouncing home
all by himself were the "big horses"
of this race-Charley (Lucky) How-
ard's California-owned Porter's Cap
and Royce Martin's Our Boots, the

Faculty Reported Working
To Call University Senate
For Discussion Of Plan
Action Not 'Packing',
Pres. Ruthven Says
The Board in Control of Student
Publications yesterday voted to re-
quest a conference with the Board of
Regents to discuss in detail a new
Regents' by-law that would "pack"
the publications board with more
faculty and alumni members.
No date has been set for the meet-
ing, and the request has not yet
been dispatched in writing, but Presi-
dent Ruthven said last night, !of
course they will have a hearing - any
faculty group is free to dicuss any
subject with the Regents."
While the publications board delib-
erated their action, faculty 'force'
opposing the proposed "reorganiza-
tion" were mustering strength, and
late last evening there was a report
on the campus that members of the
University Student Senate were trying
to convene that body for a consid-
eration of the "packing" measure.
President Explains
In the meantime, President u h-
ven said "it was ridiculous to call
the amendment to the by-laws a
'packing' of the board," adding that
he was in no pogition to speak for
actions of the Regents and the Uni-
versity Council."
Explained the president: "I am an
administrative officer."
Those were the latest developments.
yesterday in the two-day old struggle
that began Friday' when The .Daily
reported that the Regents had ap-
proved the new by-law last Decem-
ber, although it' has not been an-
nounced by them even now.
Provost of the University, Prof. E.
Blythe Stason, this week sent p let-
ter to the Board in Control of Stu-
dent Publications, asking the Board
to consider a resolution that would
make their corporation laws conform
with the new by-law.
This resolution was presented to
the publications board yesterday, but
no action was taken by them on it.
Instead the seven members voted
to ask for a chance to talk the
matter over with the Regents.
No Announcement Made
All of the Regents' by-laws have
been undergoing revision for some
time, and the proposed change in the
Board in Control of Student Publica-
tions is one part of the whole over-
hauling. The amended by-laws have
not been adopted in full by/the Re-
gents, and no announcement about
any part of them has been made to
the public. N
Certain portions of these by-laws
have been studied and approved, how-
The amended by-law provides for
a Board in Control of Student Pub-
lications with six faculty members
(there are only four now); two alumni

members with a full vote (now they
cannot vote, merely advise); and
three students (no change whatso-
If the "packing" plan is allowed to
stand, yesterday's meeting may have
been the last regular session of the
present Board. It meets again Mon-
day to select subordinate publica-
tions editors and to discuss budget
problems, and ordinarily that would
conclude its work for the year.
Board Asks Hearing
The present Board in Control of
Student Publications, in ann6uncing
its intention yesterday to ask for a
hearing with the Regents, said:

Tennis ..




The Michigan tennis team served
notice to all Big Ten opponents that
they are definitely the team to beat
for the Conference title, yesterday
afternoon, when they trounced the
Illinois netters, 8-1, for their third
straight Conference victory.
Victorious in their first two Big
Ten starts over Wisconsin and Chi-
cago, also by 8-1 scores, the Wolver-
ines brought their total record for
the season to nine wins as against
a single defeat, their only loss com-
ing at the hands of North Carolina's
great squad, ranked among the best
in the land.
Jim Tobin, captain of the Michi-
gan net forces, won his first Big Ten
match yesterday. Playing in the
number one singles spot, Tobin
dpwned Bob Schwarz, the Illinois
leader, in straight sets, 6-4, 7-5.
Schwarz won the first game on
service and Tobin retaliated by tak-
ing his own service at love. The
Michigan captain followed up by
winning the next three games, break-
ing through Schwarz twice. to lead.

Baseball .. .
(Special to The Daily)
COLUMBUS, Ohio, May 3.-Michi-
gan's high-riding baseball team held
a commanding lead in the race for
the Big Ten title tonight as the
Wolverines made off with their fourth
straight Conference game by routing
Ohio State here this afternoon, 15
to 8. A blistering 14-hit attack, aided
by eight Buckeye errors, told the
story. Michigan took the measure of
the Bucks yesterday, 13 to 5.
Sophomore Cliff Wise started on
the mound for Coach Ray Fisher's
club, but was relieved by Southpaw
Neil Muir in the seventh after being
touched for 10 hits and six runs. Muir,
after yielding a homer to McLain
with a man on base, settled down and
stifled the Ohio batters from there
on in. Wise received credit for the
victory, his second in the Big Ten and
third of the season.
The Michigan offensive wasted no
time in getting under way, knock-
ing across two runs in the very first
inning on four hits, and increasing
the lead to six with a four-run splurge

ning quartet was composed of Al
Thomas, Bob Barnard, Bob Ufer and
Warren Breidenbach.
It was the first time the two schools
had met outdoors since 1919 and all
but two of the meet records estab-
lished in four earlier meets fell before
today's assault. McCarthy was 8 in-
ches under the meet mark of 22 feet,
